to create impact
Pave the road towards thriving and sustainable ecosystems fuelled by innovation and stimulate regional development by spurring personal growth and powering up fruitful multi-party co-operations.
Time to change
All over the world national, regional and local governments have to find new ways to deal with among others education, the health care system, employment and population moving to cities from the countryside. NGOs are also confronted with these themes.
“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”
- George Bernard Shaw -
Imagine a future where blended and experiential learning will complement the educational system, or where, thanks to the next generation of entrepreneurs, unemployment will decrease. Envision a world where people will live a healthy lifestyle and where the focus of the medical care system will shift from cure to prevention. Think of cities that will be better places to live in with for example less congestion and cleaner air, or foresee rural areas with enough business opportunities, access to improved health care and availability of education.
When new solutions are required then the only way forward is to heavily invest in innovation and to push entrepreneurship. To accelerate this process the cooperation between universities, businesses of all sizes, research centres and innovation hubs needs to be fully aligned and optimised. Another prerequisite is to unlock the potential of disruptive and digital technology and make it widely available.
Today is the right time to create impact
It would be great when innovation becomes an integral part of a local or regional development agenda, transforming any municipality or county into a thriving ecosystem where businesses, universities and research centres blend well together.
Kimitisik forms and shapes these innovation networks by bringing together universities, start ups, SME’s, corporates, research centres and innovation hubs, strengthens their cooperation and as a result creates sustainable ecosystems.
Hereby Kimitisik empowers people to unlock their entrepreneurial mind set, to make an impact and to keep balance in their lives!
